Common Environmental Pollution Issues

Environmental problems may determine civilizations to fall, societies to perish, and races to become extinct. Intriguingly, such serious consequences are still not triggering appropriate responses. If our awareness increases, so should our responses. Thus, we are here synthesizing the most common and acute environmental pollution issues confronting our modern society – from the perspective of how they can affect us. While Global Warming seems to be the most famous environmental topic today, many other issues, with severe consequences on our lives, seems to remain unnoticed.

Here is our classification of the most common environmental pollution issues (other than global warming) with direct consequences in our lives.

We and our children can come in contact with environmental pollution in the following main ways:

  • Breathing
  • Playing in the Ground
  • Swimming or bathing in a surface water body (lake, river)
  • Drinking well water
  • Working in our homes – home improvement (cleaning, constructing, repairing, etc.)
  • Home Gardening
  • Eating

Here is how each of the very common activities of our every-day lives, listed above, are linked to common environmental issues:
